The People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) on Sunday held a General Members meeting at the Paradise Primary School, East Coast to prepare Party members for Local Government elections.
A release from the PNCR said that speakers included A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) Local Government Elections Campaign Director, Winston Felix, MP; Party Chairman, Basil Williams, MP; and Party Leader, Brigadier David Granger, MP.
The release said that party members present were informed of the PNCR’s plans for local government elections. Granger reminded members that the Party would be contesting the elections under the banner of APNU. Party members were urged to ensure that each eligible person in their constituencies takes advantage of the current cycle of registration and gets registered.
Felix told members that their door-to-door mobilization had to be beefed up and suitable candidates identified from the various constituencies to contest at both the Proportional Representation and the First-Past-the-Post aspects of the election. He also outlined the qualifications necessary to be a councillor for a Local Authority Area.
The release said that in a lively question and answer period, members asked a wide range of questions of regional and national interest.
